I thought this was a mid-eighties film at the latest.

Takes me back a few years, in such a fun way. What about copying data cassettes, though? I used to all the time. Precious Commodore programs!!

Subject: Neverwinter Nights
Kind of funny that the game the software designers were talking about was essentially re-released in an updated version in ~2003. Neverwinter Nights was a sequel to the Baldur's Gate series.

Had people copied that NN floppy, I never would have got to play! Thanks MC Double-D CP PP, or whatever. Wait - did I download that?

Pause it at ~1:10 on the video - the MC has NO PANTS ON!

This caused a laugh riot in the torrent tracker irc rooms, but we learned the error of our ways, everyone promised not to copy any more floppies.

Pity the poor guy that took this gig.

In this polemic, the software industry holds itself ransom, threatening to kill themselves if they don't make enough money.

So, do the right thing, kids, not for their sake of course but for yours: No games unless you put up the cash.

I remember being show this video in our BASIC class in high school, because we used the computers to pirate software. Once, Norton counted over 1300 different viruses on our LAN.

So it's apparent that we didn't learn a thing from this video, because we continued to pirate stuff in the lab.
